December Fly of the Month

An Atlantic salmon fly pattern for Christmas Eve.

Santa’s Little Helper A Christmas theme Atlantic salmon fly pattern I came up with several years past. Though it’s never caught a salmon that I know of, I’m certainly sure it could. I just hope it fetches some Christmas Cheer. Santa’s Little Helper the December Fly of the Month.

This classic-style wet fly is made with almost all wild turkey feathers. The tail, the wing and the hackle all come from the Rio Grande species of turkey found in southern Oregon. A tinsel body and jungle cock eyes complete the fly.

Classic Fly Pins For Christmas


For several years I’ve been tying old classic fly patterns on decorative hook pins for Christmas. Here are a few of my favorites. The hat pin hooks are not easy to tie on. There is a lot that you have to work around. Number one is avoid the sharp point of the pin. Ouch, but the results are sure worth it. The finished pins do look great worn on clothing lapel or hat brim.
